PHPMyAdmin log in Error

Recently, I installed WordPress on my local machine using WAMP.

While accessing PHPMyAdmin I ran into an issue that I didn’t encounter before.

When I tried to log in to the PHPMyAdmin following error occurred:

Failed to set a session cookie. Maybe you are using HTTP instead of HTTPS to access phpMyAdmin

I read some posts on Stackoverflow on how to solve this error. There was a solution that recommended trying to use incognito mode. I was able to log in to the PHPMyAdmin panel with this trick. But I wanted to use Chrome in the normal mode as I cannot work in incognito mode for my projects.

Hence, the following solution worked for me:

Removing the “Torrent Scanner” Chrome extension.’

Torrent Scanner Extension in the Chrome

Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to resolve your issue with the above solution:

  1. Open Chrome.
  2. Click on the three vertical dots at the top right.
  3. Go to More Tools>>Extensions.
  4. Check if you have the “Torrent Scanner” extension installed.
  5. Disable it.
  6. Now try logging in to the PHPMyAdmin panel.

Hope this solution helps resolve your PHPMyAdmin login problem too.
